Live-It List item #7 – Compile a recipe book of family favorite recipes.
Here’s a peek at my recipe book from Shutterfly consisting of my family’s favorite recipes.
Hopefully Sophia and Isabella will keep the traditions going…
A childhood favorite German recipe – Shooten Kraphlen.
I included pics of the family cooking….
and family traditions…
I went to shutterfly.com to make my book, but you can make a homemade version by using page protectors and inserting your favorite recipes.
Happy Cooking and Baking!!
One of my liVe-iT liSt items is making meal planning more of a priority (but in a way that doesn’t require much work)! If you are anything like me, when you go to your recipes it may look something like this:
An Unorganized Mess!!
So how did I fix this problem?! I bought some protective sleeves (made for 5×7 sized pictures) and put them in a binder. Then added adhesive tabs to keep them oRganiZed!
I also added some full length page protectors for some of my larger recipes and for my meal list! Now when someone GiVes me a recipe, no matter the shape or size, I have a place to keep it protected!
My meal list includes the name of every meal we eat and the main ingredients needed. Every time I go shopping I grab the list so I no longer have to take my entire recipe book or make a handwritten list. It has really come in handy!
This live-it list item was something that I completed in an afternoon. My next task is to get all of my recipes typed on the computer and saved. Like any goal, it is a work in progress and I will reJoiCe and eNjoY every small step I make!
